‘Peak’ Inside Mona Carona’s Summer in Carson Valley

“An unassuming gem of the Tahoe-Reno region, Carson Valley can often be overlooked by travelers who visit Nevada for outdoor recreation; but the undeniable beauty of the natural setting and deep-rooted history are what make Carson Valley a must for all visitors.”

During the summer of 2019, Mona Molayem, aka Mona Carona, and her husband Yitzy joined the Tahoe Reno Golf Media Tour, visiting the area from Truckee to Tahoe. While they were in Carson Valley, they were lucky enough to join photographer John T. Humphrey for a wild horse tour, and the resulting photo is so perfect we featured it in our visitors guide.

Cut to summer 2020, when Mona and Yitzy got to come back for another visit, this time to soar in a glider above Carson Valley and Lake Tahoe. Mona wrote about their experiences on her blog, and shared her adventures on Instagram. To see what Mona liked most about this ‘undiscovered gem’ hop over to her website and check out the most recent blog here, and her first blog here. Then follow her many travel adventures on Instagram.
